    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Whenever you have a good team lead and store lead, Target's a great place to work. The hours are flexible; the corporate culture is agreeable; very LGBTQIA+ friendly; the commitment to $15/hr by 2020 is commendable.

    Cons

    So much of the job is tied to what your leaders allow. My first ETL was a micromanager (and we disagreed on what was really important), and I was miserable. My current ETL trusts me to do my job and allows me to do what I need to do, and my department looks better for it.

    For retail it's a good place to work, but keep in mind it has the usual downsides of retail.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales specialists and brand owners more. We are immersed in our departments, and know more about what each area needs.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Typically a judgement free place to work. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are almost impossible. Higher positions are typically outsourced.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and sympathetic with your team. Don’t make them work harder promising “talks” of advancement if you know that’s not your intention.

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay Straight Out of College
    Decent Benefits and Employee Discount
    Decent Retail Manager Training Program

    Cons

    Favoritism With Employees Including Managers
    They Will Push You Out If They Want
    Lax With Pay Issues at SA HQ

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and stop trying to push people out because they "rubbed you the wrong way". This is corporate America and favoritism and forcing people out is unacceptable in the workplace nowadays. This issue starts with my trainer and includes my interactions with the regional management at the time. Minimal effort on their part to address the issue and they just let the situation play itself out even though they knew she was aggressively wanting me to fail despite checking off all training requirements.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good introduction to retail and cash handling

    Cons

    Very little loyalty of upper store management - including Human Resources - to those who are dedicated employees yet the demand loyalty from the employee to the store.
    Extremely erratic hours so you therefore cannot plan for the even the immediate future nor can you count on having full time status (and therefore receive benefits including medical).

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your dedicated employees with loyalty. Stop offering benefits via full time status and then "pull the rug out from under" the employee by having them go under the 30hr weekly average needed for those benefits. This is pure evil. No one at your stores now "gives a flip" about your raising the minimum wage when you everyone at the store gets hit with their hours being cut.
